Restaurant Description

On July 1, 2006 a place formally known as The Boathouse, became Pier 54 on the Waterfront Pier 54 is a beautiful, lakeside restaurant offering an eclectic, casual restaurant atmosphere with a warm, hospitable environment and as incredible view. Who needs walls? Not this ultra-casual neighborhood hideaway, which has three levels of all-outdoor seating on the shore of an urban lake. Inexpensive salads, sandwiches and burgers are surprisingly tasty. It's a pleasant, quiet environment, far from any busy streets or crowds. About the only distraction are the resident birds, eager to pick at any leftovers the moment you leave the table. The bar offers four beers on tap, including Kronenbourg, Four Peaks Hefeweizen and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, as well as domestic and imported bottles. A half-dozen wines also are available.

Pier 54 is open and waiting for you to come enjoy the beautiful view, relaxing atmosphere, wonderful food, and excellent service. Come by Friday & Saturday nights and you will be entertained by live musicians who will help to carry your worries away. We constantly have new and exciting events going on so check back often.

CATERING: Pier 54 and Special Moments Catering and Events can serve gatherings of up to 900 or more people (just over 100 on site) and offers special themes for parties, including Murder Mystery Parties, Casino Parties as well as catering traditional weddings and intimate smaller luncheons. Our catering menu is attached her or feel free to call (480) 730-1114 for personal service.

I went in to sneakers three times in a row because it's my neighborhood bar. I'm big on that kind of thing, and supporting local business. But Sneakers is terrible. Each time I came in it took well over half and hour to get a drink. Each time I h ...

The food is authentic and delicious. Portion size is generous and El Penasco's frozen margaritas are the best in Tempe and perhaps beyond. The decor is a combination Mexican cantina and all you can eat Chinese restuarant. The staff is friendly ...
